Spanish Rail Engineering at EXPO Ferroviaria 2017

Bombardier Transportation took part in Italy’s Expo Ferroviaria 2017 exhibition in Milan. held between october 3 and 5.

EXPO Ferroviaria is Italy’s showcase event for railway equipment, products and services. At the exposition, Bombardier Transportation presented its entire range of Bombardier Transportation rail solutions products.

Key products taking centre stage at Expo Ferroviaria include the high power BOMBARDIER TRAXX DC3 locomotive, whose prototype will be manufactured in the Bombardier’s factory in Trápaga (Vizcaya), the medium-capacity BOMBARDIER TALENT 3 whose development of the traction converter has also been developed in the Basque Country factory, and the BOMBARDIER FLEXITY tram, of the same platform as the Bombardier trams for Valencia and Alicante.

The high capacity BOMBARDIER OMNEO train also was on display at EXPO Ferroviaria. Another perfect example of exceptional Spanish engineering, Bombardier’s Trapaga site also manufactures the traction and auxiliary converters for this electric multiple unit platform, which is being produced for the French region of Normandy.

Bombardier’s rail control offering was also on display. Attendees to the event were also able to explore the BOMBARDIER INTERFLO signaling solution and the BOMBARDIER INNOVIA APM 100 automated passenger system, operated using the BOMBARDIER CITYFLO 650 Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC).

These signalling solutions are already in operation on a range of Spanish railway lines. be The BOMBARDIER CITYFLO 650 (CBTC) protection and control system has been installed on Madrid’s Metro Lines 1 and 6 and its development was carried out at the Bombardier Signalling Center of Excellence in San Sebastián de los Reyes. The systemis in operation on the BOMBARDIER INNOVIA APM which connects Terminal 4 to the satellite building at the Madrid-Barajas airport.

The Bombardier INTERFLO 450 (ERTMS 2) solution is also present in the Spanish market, specifically in the high-speed line on the North-Northwest Corridor. The project includes the Valladolid-León and Venta de Baños-Burgos lines. Bombardier’s Level 2 ERTMS system has also been implemented in the commuter network of Barcelona (Rodalies), along the 56 kilometers connecting L’Hospitalet de Llobregat and Mataró.
